    Btw, has anyone seen the latest charges in Albemarle County:
    http://wasdmz2.courts.state.va.us/CJISWeb/circuit.html

    Case Number:
    CR04017298-02 Re-Instatement
    He has now been charged 8/12/2013 With Violating Probation (Felony) date of offense 8/01/2013 with a Hearing date of 8/16/2013 Capias Granted.

    He's not going anywhere anytime soon, IMO.

    I wish they would find her. This case needs another break. Yesterday.

    I agree. I hope this is just the calm before the storm, as was stated earlier. The silence from this case in the past 24-36 hours is nerve-racking :scared: It makes me sad to see the thread this slow :(

    I am really nervous that he had hidden her long before LE picked up on him, i.e probably within four hours or so of her disappearance. And that he feels confident she will not be found, like Samantha. JMO

    :seeya: welcome. The article you linked stated there was more than one phone found. Even with that the owner of the phone would be known without going to the FBI

    I just joined Web Sleuths a few months ago so I had to Google Samantha Clarke's picture.

    The one thing that struck me immediately was that Samantha and Alexis both have their noses pierced on the same side.

    Might just be a coincidence, but serial killers are frequently known to pick victims who share similar appearances and physical characteristics. This is one of the things that helps the FBI profile them.

    I've also heard people mention that Alexis was at a concert? That sounds eerily similar to Morgana Dana Harrington's disappearance. I wonder if LE has considered a possible connection? Morgana didnt have a nose ring but is around the same age and in the same general geographic area.

    I did not hear about a concert, re: Alexis.
    My feeling is he is more of an opportunist, than a specialty abductor, i.e not actively looking, but ready if the chance comes along. JMO

    I could have been wrong about the concert...someone mentioned a concert much earlier in the thread so I was hoping for clarification on that. Thank you.

    Personally, I dont think it's a coincidence that both of their noses were pierced.

    If RAT was involved with Samantha Clarke's disappearance then the nose ring could have been what initially attracted him to Alexis.He could been replaying Samantha's abduction over and over in his head the entire time he was with Alexis.

    Im not going to get into the rest of it as I dont want to cause any distress to friends or family who might be viewing the thread but you can rest assured that the FBI will be closely scrutinizing any similarities between the two girls, especially given such an an unlikely and unsavory connection.

    Rt 29 goes all the way into Charlottesville as well.On a map its almost exactly mid-way between Lovingston and Orange.

    Okayyyy....

    Sorry... I am jumping in...

    But... I have been wracking my brain trying to figure out if I had really read/heard that AM had been caught on CCVID at Liberty talking to someone at the pumps...

    I finally found this reference (see below).

    I still have not found a reference by LE as to it being caught on tape... but a worker at Liberty reports she saw AM "talking with a man at the pump before she drove away."

    Who this man AM was talking to... I have no clue... :waitasec:

    I have been researching one more thing that has been gnawing at me...

    I thought I had read in MSM that RAT had purchased "other items" with the videos at Ultimate Bliss on the day AM went missing...

    I have googled and googled... and have found ONLY reports that RAT purchased ONLY videos that day... nothing else...

    I am sorry to have mislead you all...

    In fact... when I was googling for my research... I found MY OWN INCORRECT POST ON WS!!! :doh: :blushing:

    This teaches me to be vewy, vewy careful when submitting information on WS... (though I try to be careful, anyway.)

    Have a busy weekend with lots of running around... Since news always seems to break when I am not on WS, I'm hoping that will be the case today or tomorrow! :please: meanwhile, marking my spot here so I can try to check in on mobile.

    Thinking of Alexis and her family, all day - please let today be the day for answers! :rose:

    Certainly the would "know" by visual clues if one was Alexis' phone. But I think they are going to go through proper forensic protocol to verify it. And I know AM used at least 2 different covers for her phone via images on social media, so it is likely she could have has more thus making an "aha" moment a bit more fuzzy. I do think if they found and iPhone at all then it is almost assuredly hers. But when they find evidence they are going to immediately bag and tag to preserve evidence. I know...preaching to the choir. ;-) While LE may know by hunch it is her phone they aren't going to release info about it in a hunch.

    It is going to be a quiet weekend I imagine. We may hear something Monday. We may not. I am keeping my eyes and ears peeled for calls for volunteer search efforts and otherwise backing off unless I hear something from official sources. There is rain in the forecast for that area this weekend. I hope they have found their most crucial evidence. But what I really want is to find Alexis. :(

    Zapped, the concert you are relating to Alexis might be the Interlocken Music Festival coming to Nelson County the first week of September. Someone mentioned it on this thread, but I couldn't tell you where. (Just checked it out, I'd love to go. Great bands, good people! I'd love to see Widespread Panic again!) Anyways, I also think they should hand out flyers or something of the sort to the concert goers. These types of festivals don't bring TOO many crazies out of the woodwork, from what I've seen from personal experience. I think they would be willing to help. I feel as if a lot of those people are into the nature and outdoors, maybe they'll be hiking/camping in the area before or after the festival. Just an idea!

    FYI: I've moved a few posts over to RAT's background thread so we can keep the information together in one place for easy reference.

    I know what you mean, BUT a websleuths member has recently said that her husband saw him in the same area. I think it was yesterday. On another note, there was a gentleman that went to the media and said he saw RAT and 2 other people at a Mini Market near Crabtree Falls. I think 3 people seeing him is not just a coincidence!

    so.. help me to understand this...

    1) they've charged him with a probation violation, in albermarle county... separate from the abduction charge in nelson?
    2) what was he on probation for, the arson charge?
    3) what were the terms of his probation?
    4) they have charged him with violating probation with an offense occurring BEFORE she went missing but not charging him until after he was arrested for abduction in nelson?
    5) does this mean its stemming from something he told them in interrogation?


    help me to understand, cause I am really confused.... :)

    edited for clarification of questions...

    I have corrected the above to read Probation (Felony).
    Sorry, all else is accurate...I was tired and typed wrong word.
